The White Scapular is the badge of the Order of the Holy Trinity, which was founded by St John de Matha in the 12th century after he had a vision of Christ with two captives in 1193.
The order was approved by Pope Innocent III in 1198, who is said to have had a vision of an angel wearing the motif on the scapular. Its main aim was the ransom and liberation of Christians held captive by Muslims.
Wearing the scapular is an act of devotion to the Blessed Trinity and prayers and almsgiving for the work of the order are recommended.
Like all of our scapulars, it is hand made in England by traditionalist nuns.
